Sunday lunch....

.....Leg of Lamb Baked in Foil with Butter and Herbs with Redcurrant, Orange and Mint Sauce

This is what we shall have...looking through Delia's 'What to eat in April', was'nt really looking for what to have on Sunday but this did look good. I love lamb, particularly Kleftiko or Mechoui, the long slow roasting is wonderful.

What will be yours?

Sunday lunch

Lamb's my favourite meat, but it's my husband's least favourite, so we don't have it as often as I'd like. I do try to roast something every Sunday - beef, more often than not. Last week it was pork, and I'm thinking it's been a while since we've had chicken,. so I think it's going to be chicken this weekend. I'll make it more spring-like than usual by cooking lots of fresh green veggies with it, I think, as opposed to the usual carrots 'n peas.

Apologies for the stream-of-consciousness posting, but I've only just woken up after staying up FAR too late last night - finally got around to watching Downton Abbey (yeah, where have I been for the past year?) and I'm addicted! I blame James ;)

ooo i love roast lamb - we had that a couple of weeks ago (half price per kilo in sainsbugs) and i have 2 "ready meals" or rast lamb leftovers int he freezer.

Am hoping my amazon order comes through tomorrow - so i can use my tagine on sunday - but cheap skate me went for super saver delivery - so who knows if it will come or not - it has been sent! so fingers crossed.

in the winter/cold time i do like a good sunday lunch - and lazy hazy tea (cheese on toast).

so a bit undecided at the moment - will be a fly by the seat of my pants weekend for us.

Will make a pie with leftover cooked chicken. Going to add some chopped up wild garlic to the sauce, OH just arrived home from a walk with a bag full. I see one of the chefs on Sat Kitchen is using wild garlic, recording it to watch later. x

Sunday Lunch - seven hour lamb

Seven Hour Lamb

1 large leg of lamb
4 onions, sliced
8 garlic cloves, peeled but left whole
4 carrots leave whole if small or quarter lengthways
300 ml/&"189; pint of white wine
300 ml/&"
189; pint stock
2 tbsp Armagnac or Madeira, optional to finish thyme sprigs

Heat oven to 120C. Put your largest lidded casserole on the hob and brown the seasoned leg of lamb on all sides - do this very thoroughly until it is a good dark brown as it will not brown during cooking. If the lamb sticks add a drizzle of oil. Pour away any fat that has collected in the bottom of the pan.

Throw in the vegetables, followed by the wine and stock. Season and bring to the boil. Season, cover and put in the oven. Bake for seven hours turning twice. After 5 hours the meat will be cooked and offer no resistance to the knife.

There is no need to rest the meat when it is cooked. To finish the sauce, transfer the meat and vegetables to a serving dish. Strain the sauce into a jug and pour or blot away the fat with kitchen paper. Pour the sauce into a pan then boil the liquid hard to reduce by a quarter. Adjust the seasoning and add the Armagnac if you wish and serve alongside the

7-hour lamb

That's the recipe. Thanks Saff.

It's actually called 7 1/2 hour lamb, which I mistakenly remembered as 6 1/2 hour lamb. But my joint isn't a large one and, judging by a quick peek into the oven just now, 5 or 6 hours will be ample.

It's an excellent recipe and does leave the lamb meltingly tender.

Sunday Lunch.

I love a roast dinner, def one of my faves.

Has to be chicken, I will eat beef to be polite but I won't eat lamb or pork even if you were paying me.

Skinless, boneless chicken breast is my fave!

Sunday lunch

We were 8 adults and six children for lunch yesterday. Rather than a traditional roast, I roasted some peppers and put them onto a big plate with lots of cooked meats like salami and parma ham, with lots of sliced avocado and mozzerella. We had a big rocket salad and some baked spuds and it was all delicious and so easy! No last minute juggling of gravy and getting all the veg ready at the same time which I find incredibly stressful. For pudding we just had cheese and a coffee & walnut cake.

I enjoy serving antipasta too sometimes when entertaining, but do love a roast on Sunday.

Yesterday we had a roast rack of pork with all the trimmings....spuds, roasted caramelized carrots, broccoli and braised leeks plus gravy. Yummy.
